The remainder of the book is a fairly complete chronological history of the emails with a reasonable effort at explaining the backstory for the general reader. It was of course thrown together in a very short time and shows it. (So I give it only 4 stars). The co-authors describe themselves as "Lukewarmers", neither alarmists not denialists, accepting that global warming is occurring but not convinced it is mostly caused by man and not convinced that superhuman efforts are all that can save the planet.Read more ›
The closest analogy would be the Pentagon Papers, for which Daniel Ellsberg received praise rather than vilification. But the Vietnam War was not an object of adoration as is our self-flagellating anthropogenic global warming.
Finally, just before the failed December 2009 Copenhagen Conference, proof positive came out with the release to the public of the CRU files. The authors were close to this event, and, like me, they watched the creation of a new word, "Climategate," which within a week was getting tens of millions of hits on Google.
This evidence is more than a smoking gun. It's a chain of nuclear explosions. The UN's IPCC -- a political body with only a few scientists (aided and abetted by formerly repected scientists at England's CRU) -- has been twisting and selectively cherry picking temperature records for years. THEY THREW OUT THE TEMPERATURE RECORDS!!!! Literally. Even the "Medieval Optimum" -- the time 1,000 years ago when people were visiting Greenland in open boats (in winter) and growing wine grapes there -- disappeared from the record. Michael Mann (here in the U.S.) helped by manipulating tree ring data, spreading false science to show the infamous "hocky stick" temperature graph as per Gore's movie. Google "hide the decline" for an amusing video about that.
And now in 2010 we are moving into Climategate II. Climategate I is the scandal uncovered at the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the Univ. of East Anglia in England, the subject of this book. Climategate II Involves the dishonesty at the US NASA-GiSS facilities as well as at the NOAA facilities. The underlying science of the entire global warming scare has disappeared in a mushroom cloud of scientific dishonesty.Read more ›
